Reverse Implied Odds

The opposite of implied odds which estimate what additional chips you will win should you complete a draw or make a better hand than your opponent, reverse implied odds estimate how much you will lose should you complete your draw yet make a hand that is worse than your opponent's. For example, if you are drawing to a low flush and hit your hand yet find yourself up against an opponent drawing to a better flush, reverse implied odds refer to how much you'll lose should the flush be completed.
